Jody Young: $1 Million Complaint Against Atlanta Financial Advisor
ACG Wealth financial advisor Jody Young (CRD# 4068656) has received an investor complaint alleging seven-figure damages. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and Securities and Exchange Commission records show that the former Arkadios Capital representative, currently based in Atlanta, is not registered as a broker.
Jody Young’s BrokerCheck report discloses one pending investor complaint. Filed in March 2022, the complaint alleges negligence, over-concentration, and unsuitable recommendations connected to alternative investments while he was a representative of Triad Advisors and Arkadios Capital. The pending complaint alleges damages of at least $1,000,000.
An earlier investor complaint disclosed on Mr. Young’s BrokerCheck report was filed in 2011. It alleged that as a representative of Triad Advisors, he recommended an investment that “was unsuitable due to liquidity concerns.” The complaint settled with the return of the client’s “invested monies back from product sponsor to alleviate his concerns.”
According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and the Securities and Exchange Commission, Jody Young holds 22 years of securities industry experience. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, he has been an investment advisor with ACG Wealth since 2009. He is not presently registered as a broker. His past registrations include Arkadios Capital (Atlanta, Georgia; 2017-2022), Triad Advisors (Atlanta, Georgia; 2009-2017), LPL Financial Corporation (Atlanta, Georgia; 2004-2009), Wachovia Securities (St. Louis, Missouri; 2002-2004), Morgan Keegan & Company (Memphis, Tennessee; 2001-2002), and Tejas Securities Group (Austin, Texas; 1999-2001). His credentials include the passage of four securities industry qualifying examinations: the Uniform Combined State Law Examination, or Series 66; the Securities Industry Essentials Examination, or SIE; the Futures Managed Funds Examination, or Series 31; and the General Securities Representative Examination, or Series 7.
